Default Sqirrel

Taken on Saturday. Only have the 14-42mm lens and didn't dare get closer as I had already be bitten but one of the little buggers!

Table is a distraction but it was the only thing they would climb on that I could get level with.



Taken at Centre Pacrs in Thetford, squirrels everywhere, crack a monkey nut and within seconds 6/7 were around. Lots of birds too but the squirrels chased them off before I could get any pictures.

Cute little bugger innee? Nice capture, so to speak.

Funny I just turned to look out of the window, the snow is just starting to fall, then a squirrel jumped on the back of a chair outside and put it's nose on the glass right by me.

Is that Thetford in Norfolk? I spent time way back in the stone age, playing soldiers around there.

Yes Norfolk, Elvenden Forest resort is the other side of Thetford Wood from RAF Lakenhurst. We got to see jets landing on the way home this morning, accompanied by oooooo's and aahhhhhhh's as it did so! LOL

Cool, I used to take off from there and then jump out of perfectly good aeroplanes. Back in my misspent youth that is!
Interesting area isn't it Sam.

Hey you inspired me to take a shot of one of our squirrels.
